    Escape The Night is the longest running YouTube Original series out now. This star studded cast includes many of your favorite YouTubers like Shane Dawson, Liza Koshy, Safiya Nygaard, and me - MatPat! However, being a cast member does not stop me from theorizing about the mystery at the heart of the show - what is going on with our leading man, Joey Graceffa? Looking over the seasons and the new Escape The Night All Stars trailer, I've realized something VERY IMPORTANT. Joey is not on the same side as his YouTube friends. In fact, he is their biggest threat!

        In the recurring metaphor that is a game of chess
        The cursed god is the king
        The victims are the pawns
        Plot convenience plays the part of complex pieces
        Joey himself obviously plays the part of the game queen

                            You missed some key points.

                            1. Lele suggested for Matt Haag to die, she didn’t say for the death to be randomized.

                            2. Several other people assisted in helping Colleen Ballinger’s death. (Nikita Dragun, Safiya Nygaard)

                            3. Many people killed people whom they suspected, for example-Timmothy got angry on Justine’s death, and helped kill her-which Joey and no part in.

                            4. It’s sorta unfair to acclaim Joey’s behaviour is irrational-when several characters behaved similarly.

                            5. Joey wasn’t the only one who hated DeStorm, the whole cast up to episode four (excluding Gabbie Hana, and possibly Andrea Russet.)

                            6. You rigged several episodes out of content. (See reasoning above.)

                            7. Joey felt real sorrow of Lizas death, rewatch her death-you see him attempt to grab her from the harpy (though you have a point.)

                            8. Andrea was the one who killed Tana, sure Joey didn’t do anything to stop it-but it was Andrea suggested her death, and broke the ice plate.

                            9. He was angry because he was sad and angered he killed a friend-and didn’t get something that would help us escape, making her death in vain.

                            And I conclude this paragraph with this statement: Several things were taken out of context.

                                          On one hand Joey killed tana and that’s sad.

                                          On the OTHER hand he saved hundreds of thousands of people by killing tana and stoping Tanacon.

                                                                                            Ok so the last episode of season 4 Joey opens Pandora’s box. Know if you have seen the episode where they explain /show that the society against evils sister I don’t remember her name. So she had opened the Pandora’s box and became a monster. So what if there is a season 5 JOEY BECOMES A MONSTER and mordimire comes back along with colidipy and they find out Joey becomes a monster in disguise and he is like the Sorcerer where he pretends he is good but in the end he try’s to kill everyone that was not is season 4, 3, 2, 2 which means . Lele Shane glozzle searrai Mat Lauran Liza ect. Basically everyone that died that was not in season4. So I honestly agree with you cause I don’t get it. Btw in the trailer of season 3 you told I think Nikita or manny to shut up when saf died. But yeah it’s a theory. It might not be true. I love your Chanel next time I watch this show I’m going to watch this show I will never unsee all this stuff that you were saying.
